recently acquired pc, had trouble booting first time from get go. explored bios issues, driver updating, psu issue- all inconclusive. over time it has booted less and less and over the last two weeks is displaying the dreaded BSOD with the error "driver_irql_not_less_or_equal" and another error "bad pool header" i'm at a loss, tried everything i could think to investigate: on device manager security processor load driver and avast network shield support both have a exclamation point next to them . . . thank you
